SILVERADO TRIM LEVELS
Work Truck (WT)
The 2018 Silverado WT is the perfect- you guessed it- work truck. It delivers BIG capability yet also adds three great new, now-standard features for 2018: 7″ MyLink touchscreen w/ Apple CarPlay & Android Auto, six-speaker audio system and a Rear Vision Camera!
Other features include cloth upholstery with a 40/20/40 split-bench seat, HID projector-beam headlamps with LED signature Daytime Running Lamps, CornerStep rear bumper, power locks, and a 6,500lb GVWR on RWD models with the 4.3L engine.
Step up to the LS trim and you’ll get even more style & capability with chrome front & rear bumpers, remote locking tailgate, power heated outside mirrors & windows, keyless entry, OnStar 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot and 17-inch wheels.
Similar in spec to the LS, but even more style! Look for 20-inch chrome-clad aluminum wheels, body-colour front & rear bumpers + grill surround + headlamp bezels and frame-mounted tow hooks.
As the most-popular model in the Silverado range the LT is big on style and substance. Look for an upgraded 8-inch MyLink touchscreen with voice-activation, CD player, 17-inch aluminum wheels, E-Z Lift & Lower tailgate, rear wheelhouse liners (crew & double cab models), and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

It adds Rancho brand shocks, air cleaner, Hill Descent Control, Underbody Shield and Recovery Hooks, Z71 sill plates, unique gauge cluster & interior trim, unique body-colour lower bumper & grill design with Z71 badge & tailgate badge.
